This tour will offer a memorable adventure on snowshoes! Your guide will take you in small groups away from Rovaniemi to explore Lapland wilderness forests and landscapes. You may even spot or hear some animals such as reindeer or arctic hares…
Snowshoeing is a great way to experience nature because it allows going off the beaten path and get to places that you cannot reach with cars or on foot. This snowshoe experience will offer your guide the opportunity to teach you more about the surrounding nature, local life, how to survive in the Arctic and how to build a fire.
This snowshoeing adventure is also possible by night for those who want to experience the Northern lights with an extra nature activity. The snowshoeing + auroras combo is available here.
